so shelf-ish...

Shopping for anything other than groceries is not in our budget these days since my husband spent a fair bit of time off work due to a injury.
So when I saw a beautiful shelf last week in a local shop, I admired it and moved on. The budget, remember?
Then, when I heard the store was closing and everything was now 50% off, my sister and I headed back for another look.
Long story short, it followed me home BUT in return for my sister buying it for me, I now have some custom painting and sewing orders to fill for her... gladly!
Win-win, right?

The shelf looks great on your fireplace. Sisters are great to trade with!
